Synergeia Seeks The Best Education-Focused LGUs As Pandemic Reshapes Learning

Which city / municipality excelled in providing good education to its constituents even amidst the pandemic?

In the spirit of solidarity with fellow Filipinos facing great need, Synergeia Foundation joined hands with its local government partners to help out those who were hit by Typhoons Rolly and Ulysses that submerged many parts of Luzon, and left at least 94 dead and thousands homeless.

Hundreds of food packs and sacks of rice were prepared and distributed to the towns of Cabagan in Isabela and Camalaniugan and Buguey in Cagayan on Tuesday.

Heavy rains brought about by a recent slew of storms including Typhoon Ulysses last week triggered the worst flooding in the provinces of Isabela and Cagayan in at least four decades, pushing residents to the roofs of their houses as they awaited rescuers.

Synergeia and its local government partners also donated food packs, soaps, mats and blankets to 200 families affected by Super Typhoon Rolly in Tiwi, Albay. Rolly, known as Goni internationally, was the strongest storm to hit the earth this year.

Many local government partners of Synergeia from other parts of Luzon and those in Visayas and Mindanao joined the relief drive and more have pledged support, in a show of strong community with the typhoon victims as they rebuild their houses and their lives.

They include Marawi, Piagapo and Taraka in Lanao del Sur; North Upi and Datu Blah Sinsuat in Maguindanao; Polomolok, South Cotabato; Dao, Capiz; Dinalupihan, Bataan and San Gabriel, La Union.

Separately, Valenzuela City gave P6 million in financial assistance to the victims of Super Typhoon Rolly in some areas in the provinces of Albay, Camarines Sur and Catanduanes.

These towns and cities are among the 426 local governments that work with Synergeia in lifting the quality of basic education in their communities. But they are all ready to step up, join hands and help distressed communities in the aftermath of calamities.
